    “Something emerged from nothing and then became everything… You think that this is logical? What’s wrong with Theism and spirituality?”

    You’re talking about Biblical creation, right? I think you answered your own question…

    Telling people to …
    Telling people to ignore god, when god tells them to kill children, is against their belief. If god tells you to jump off a bridge, you must, if god asks. If you doubt, you are trying god, and wrong. However, they are hippocrates. They then tell you to believe that Satan is who told you that, pretending to be god. Then we judge what we believe god told you, over what you told us what he told you.

    2000 years, and he has talked to no-one, or he is being ignored by all. What-ever.

    I don’t agree with …
    I don’t agree with much you say about “Christians”, true Christians, not new-age Christians. New-age Christians have bent the rules, in order to find relation with a majority of the population. Religion is purely a politics, thus the constant change and perception.

    Christians, at the core, do not believe in religious freedom, nor do any other religion. That is a pure contradiction to, “You shall have no other gods before me, I am the one true god.”

    I will reply to my reply, with the rest.

    Everything out of …
    Everything out of something is very logical, based on what we know ( aggregation etc). Admittedly, the whole mystery of the origins of matter(or, energy) is not known at present. This doesn’t make the claim, that a “god” did it, at all valid. Just as the claim that thunder and lightning was created by an angry “god” was not a valid one.

    What is wrong with theism? Well, to put it simply, it is based on faith.

    good video. i am still anti-dogmatic, but if people covered #15 better i wouldn’t be. i wish people would take responsiblity for thier actions regardless if thier god told them to do it or not. you are responsible to those in your society for your actions and i don’t care if your god told you to do it or not. in this sense i am very intolerant of those who would hide behind religion as an excuse to persicute others.

    Thanks for the reply. And depending on the Christian we’re talking about, you’re probably right.

    However, humans have this marvelous (and sometimes horrible) ability to compartmentalize their irrational beliefs with the rational ideas that I list in my video. My video is simply appealing to the compartment that’s labeled “reason” and contains the 10 items listed in the video.

    Cheers

    1. False. …
    1. False. Christians are told to kill unbelievers.
    2. False. Gay marriage? Should I go on?
    3. False. See above.
    4. The fact humans need to survive is obviously common between all humans, not just Christians and Atheists, just as we all see colours.

    Christianity(or any other faith based superstition) opposes logic. The sooner it dies out the better. It will not do so if you attempt to legitimise it.

    Nice video. Very well structured arguments and an honest take which doesn’t presuppose anything. You are a rare breed, hope to see more video’s soon.

    Thank you for this video.

    I was skeptic when I saw the title.

    I’m an Atheist and I’ve noticed my growing anger over religion.

    I had a prejudice over my commonality with religious people.

    Thank you for not falling into bigotry’s pitfalls Iike I did.

    Human reason and …
    Human reason and evidence itself is through wisdom. Wisdom is defined by knowing through which is supported by evidence. If what you believe is supported by no evidence it is not wisdom but ignorance. Wisdom is all compassing, knowing and expanding what you already know to be true and expanding your knowledge of things you do not know. This is backed by evidence and logical thinking, not by a dusty tome written by primitive men

    To tell the truth, I actually hold almost all views of those of which you say. It’s interesting you state this because in reality it’s views that I think most agnostics would share for the most. I myself am agnostic.

    **or the Creator**

    **or the Creator**

    What Creator?
    How can something concious exist without time and space?

    **affecting your “normal” reality will you get the evidence to The Truth beyond our physical limitations of time and space**

    If something is not comprehensible through our physical limitations, then how could we ever actually know what `The Truth` is?
    Either it is beyond our understanding or it isn`t.
    Understandin the Creator is a waste of time or it`s invisible and unmeasurable like all imaginary things

    **And what exactly …
    **And what exactly is human reason and evidence compared to the very force that is the living Universe and more.**

    What else is living in the Universe besides what lives on earth?

    **Its wisdom is in infinity while we are limited by physical time and space.**

    What evidence do you have that the universe is conscious?

    What evidence do you have that the universe is not restricted to the same physical laws that we are?

    **Only through your death**

    What can I possibly experience after I die?

    And what exactly is human reason and evidence compared to the very force that is the living Universe and more. Its wisdom is in infinity while we are limited by physical time and space. Only through your death or the Creator affecting your “normal” reality will you get the evidence to The Truth beyond our physical limitations of time and space.

    Please read in my channel my postings regarding truth in the Chinese puzzel. What I wrote truly happend but it is up to you to take your own journey.

    I think truth should be found through reason and evidence.

    Humility is irrelevant to truth.

    Please understanding what is going on. Most people are struggling with truth like they would a Chinese puzzle.

    Have you considered the possibility that the communications you call preaching and rambling just actually might be The Truth to life & reality? I am not asking you to trust me. I am asking you to let go of pride and have enough faith to turn to the living Universe yourself, in humility of not knowing, and be receptive to its answers in your reality.

    Seek The Truth through humility

    I rarely remove comments (I’m big on free speech) But you aren’t engaging in any discussion here Centaur67, you are preaching. This is taking up space better used by people who have something to say…not preach.

    If you have something of substance instead of rambling, please comment again!

    Thanks,
    Jordan

    Yeah, but I don’t say it’s their “athiesm” that leads to these commonalities.

    Maybe you should watch the video ;)

    i dont even have to watch this video to say that atheists do not have ideas that all atheists share other than the fact that there is no evidence for gods existance. other than that, “atheism” plays no role in determining someones ideas on murder, rape, politics, etc..
